Hillsburn had a big year in 2016, releasing their debut full-length album, In The Battle Years, and winning a Canadian Folk Music Award for “New/Emerging Artist of the Year.” The Halifax-based quintet plans to unveil a follow-up album in May 2017.
"Sunfields sound like Wilco making out with Tom Petty in the back of Neil Young's van, while listening to Sparklehorse & dreaming of The Beatles."Acid-laced pop Sunfields are the brain child of Jason Kent. Although the quartet was born in 2009, three quarters of its members have been playing music off & on together since they were teenagers, analyzing, learning and knit picking their parents scratchy vinyl collection. Their debut album , Palace in the Sun (2010) was once described as '...the most overlooked album of 2010.' Their second record, HABITAT (2014) has been described as "...blossoming like a field of poppies in a rainy English field."
